Muslim cleric gets 11 years in prison for burning Bible
An Islamic cleric was sentenced to 11 years in prison for burning a Bible outside the U.S. Embassy in Cairo during protests in September against an anti-Islam film.
A misdemeanors court sentenced Ahmed Abdullah on Sunday for insulting religion and burning a Bible, according to the Christian Post.
Abdullah, who heads the Umma and Mariya satellite TV channels, publicly burned the Bible to protest a film posted to YouTube, titled “Innocence of Muslims,” which was produced in the United States and set off anti-American protests across the Muslim world, the Christian Post reported.
